An exclusive preview screening of the new drama for Sky from award-winning writer Jez Butterworth (Spectre, Jerusalem). Set in 43AD, the drama follows the Roman army as they return to crush the Celtic heart of Britannia, a mysterious land led by warrior women and powerful Druids who claim to channel the powerful forces of the underworld. With scenes shot in various Welsh locations. Following the screening there will be a Q&A with the show's executive producer James Richardson.

Britannia stars BAFTA nominated actors David Morrissey (The Walking Dead), Zoe Wanamaker (My Family), BAFTA winner Mackenzie Crook (The Office) and True Detective's Kelly Reilly.

When the Romans invade Britain in 43AD, Kerra (Reilly), daughter of the King of the Cantii, is forced to put her differences aside with arch-rival Queen Antedia (Wanamaker) to face their invaders. The Romans, led by General Aulus Plautius (Morrissey), are determined to succeed where Julius Caesar failed and conquer this mythical land at the far edge of the Roman Empire. As tribes and Druids unite to fight the Romans, Kerra is thrust into the most important role of her life as she spearheads the resistance against the might of the Roman army.

Welsh filming locations included Nash Point, Henrhyd Falls, Rhossili Bay, and Llyn y Fan Fach.
